flowers in the house.....




lovelies that made my heart boom this past weekend

~flowers in the house

~the sunshine that appeared

~take out Chinese food with my family followed by
a golf ball hunt down a ravine....... our laughter really did filled the hills
{we live near a golf course and my husband & son-in-law will go to extreme measures to find golf balls}

~finding a new tea I can't get enough of called, read my lips  {here} 

 ~encouraging words from lovely friends who have bought my book {book found here}
{thank you sooooo much}

~a very kind friend who touched my heart by going
 above and beyond the call of duty
{who I am excited to meet very soon}

I am blessed
and I hope you are able to say you are too

{xox}

a wee little note.....
never judge the day by the weather
and
tell the truth and you don't have to remember anything

I am married to a golfer too! I think of it as year-round Easter egg hunting! I accuse him of planting the balls to try and grow a golf course! "golf seeds"
It has not worked as of yet.

Your collage of pics is beauty-full!
(I hope nobody ever puts you in a beige room for very long)

I love peonies! They remind me of my grandmother. She used to have several plants and they looked and smelled so wonderful. I would love to grow them, but they don't grow where I live now. :)

Good morning KORALEE!

You bring joy to us in so many ways my friend; this NEW TEA you discovered sounds TOO GOOD TO BE TRUE! I am always on the hunt for the best chocolate teas and this one sounds like a perfect blend. I did find one that is chocolate strawberry that I find SO LOVELY. But for me, the highlight this weekend was receiving your book. I cannot tell you how every page just pops out joy.

I know that you will soon be meeting someone that I too know and love. (Give her a big hello for me!) And I hope you will come by for my next post on Friday. I am just thrilled for you and for myself, to own your book!

Have a super day my friend. We have two days off from teaching this week: IT'S PRESIDENT'S DAY!

Much love, Anita

Roselie said...

Your words make my heart boom Koralee! I 'm glad you had so many reasons to feel blessed this weekend!

NanaDiana said...

koralee- What a beautiful post this is. I love the hunting golf ball parties. Our kids used to have them, too. Now they take the old golf balls and whap the out into the bay. (whap is a technical term around here)

I am blessed, too! Have a wonderful day and I LOVE all your flowers! xo Diana

Castles Crowns and Cottages said...

Sweetest Koralee! You came to this post of mine! A bit COOl..a bit HOT....not sure if it was too risky, but I just love translating irony!

I will be posting on YOUR BOOK later today, I hope. When I do, please come by!

I hope you are feeling better my friend; those sore throats always start out so uncomfortable. Lots of CHOCOLATE (antioxidant) tea for you today, I hope!

Thinking of you as I enjoy making my post dedicated to YOU!

Mille bises, Anita

Veronica Roth said...

It’s true Koralee, we did luck out on that bit of sunshine recently. It was raining here on the North Shore and I headed out to Steveston for a nice long walk in the sunshine. How wonderful that I can drive 30 minutes to find the weather I like. :) David’s tea is a favorite of ours too. I’ll check out your tea next time I stop in.

Marilyn said...

That last quote is so very true.
I just ordered your book, but from Amazon. I didn't want to pay tax on the other sight, sorry. Excited to get the book. Flowers are making my heart go pitter patter.

wendy said...

Never Judge a day by the weather. GOSH....those are spoken right to me aren't they. I let the weather too often affect my moods.
And it was cold and windy today.

Fresh flowers in the house though, do certainly lift your spirits. I saw your book featured on Anita's blog. Looks lovely.,

Bohemian said...

Your Visuals always make me Smile, so Cheerful and Colorful! And now you have a BOOK too {insert squeal of Delight}... OMG... must check that out now! *Winks* Congrats on being Published!

I absolutely adore flowers and hope to have gardens full of them one day! Thank you for such a cheery post - it can be hard to remember to count your blessings sometimes but it is something we should do much more often I think...starting with Roses!
